Desk Essentials

Happy Wednesday everybody! I hope everyone had a great weekend, whether you had prom, college visits (like me), or just had a really nice time with family and friends. I'm back to my normal schedule and the weather is so nice here too! 

I have a few things that I think are very necessary for anyone's desktop space! I personally obsess over stationary and all that. You guys know how much I love notebooks, planners, and journals, too. 
Real Simple magazine has been one of my favorite, interior design mags of all time. They have so many great things and a lot of inspiration. Some inspiring magazines are great to have on hand for those "writer's block" days. 

I am a firm believer in weekly planners and I love to just write all of my goals down for the week ahead. You could have deadlines, events, or just things you need to get done on that day and it feels so satisfying to just rip the sheet off at the end of the week. I bought this from Target (no surprise) and I couldn't find it online, but I'm sure there are ones just like this out there somewhere. I also bought this lined notebook there and I just think it's the cutest thing ever. Who wouldn't want this on their desk? 

I also think a nice bouquet of flowers and a candle can liven up any desk. If your office allows it, they'll add a really nice touch and make your work area smell really good.   
I talked about these two things about a week or two ago. I wasn't too impressed with this lip gloss as I earlier stated. However, I did like how this Makeup Forever lip gloss was not only mini, it just gives a pretty sheen to your lips. When you're working all day and your makeup starts to sort of fall apart during the busy work day, you might need something to just freshen up a bit. This lip gloss has that perfect use! If you have a matte lipstick on that starts to crack and dry out your lips, this would be great for re-touching! It's small and compact so it won't be in the way of any important papers or spill all over. 

I have been devouring these mints lately. They taste like mint tea and give you nice smelling breath after! These are vital to anyone who needs to freshen up and make sure their breath doesn't kill anyone while you're talking in a conference or something. That would be terrible! You can find my more in-depth review here

I really love to organize and make my desk space full of pretty stationary. Instead of boring notebooks and such, decorate with some fun prints and lots of color! It will make your work experience a hundred times better. If you would like to see more stationary, you can see it all here. I wish you all a great week and I will see you very soon!

Xoxo, Nat


  1. I'm all about nice note pads, pens and stuff. I just am not a big person on organization because it blocks creativity.

    1. I guess it's different for everyone! I think organizing makes me more inspired and able to focus on the things that matter, instead of worrying about all of my things being in the wrong place. Sometimes, it's totally reverse for other people and that's okay! XX

  2. Great post, I bought a pack of posters from New Look for £3 which I think are really cute. I want more storage type items for my desk so it can look a little neater.

    1. You are prepared for pretty much anything! I'm trying to make sure that I use up all of my notebooks and pens before I buy new ones...because you know... I'll be buried in paper and pens!!! XX

  4. Love this! These are definitely essential, especially a weekly planner since I'm a reckless and unorganised person!
